Happiness series: Why does music make you happy?

Music can have a multitude of effects on our emotions. But why does it often make us feel so just-got-to-dance or laugh-out-loud happy?

We asked our social communities on Facebook and twitter on #HappinessMonday what they thought! ­­­

1. The memories come flooding back!







2. It helps us remember our family and friends



3. It helps us, no matter what, whether we’re happy or sad!





4. It stimulates our brains



5. It widens our experience of life
